About this course
A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, we encourage pupils to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. We encourage them to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
- develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
- are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future
Can I just enroll in a single course? I'm not interested in the entire Specialization.
Yes, you can enrol in a single course. Our best science tutors would try their best to meet your needs.
What is the refund policy?
We will refund the money for the remaining lessons.
What background knowledge is necessary?
We will do initial assessment to identify the gaps in the prior knowledge and would provide extra help required.
Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
No, your tutor would plan and discuss your course with you.
We know that we only have one hour per subject every week, as opposed to more than five hours per subject in school. As a result, the curriculum is well-structured to cover all of the relevant themes. Key Stage 1 (years 5-7), Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11), Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14), and Key Stage 4 (ages 14-16) comprise England's National Curriculum for Science. The curriculum is designed to help students improve their scientific knowledge and understanding, as well as their scientific inquiry and investigative skills.
Key Stage 1:
Students in Key Stage 1 are introduced to fundamental scientific topics such as materials, plants, animals, and the human body. We cover the following topics with Key Stage 1 students: Identifying and categorising materials Material fundamental attributes (such as hardness, flexibility, and absorbency) Plant and animal life cycles Identifying and naming human bodily parts Basic hygiene and a nutritious diet.
Key Stage 2:
Students at Key Stage 2 expand on their knowledge of basic scientific principles and study more complex themes such as the human body, energy, forces, and the environment. We cover the following topics with Key Stage 2 students: The human body's digestive, circulatory, and respiratory systems Energy and energy transfer (for example, sound, light, and heat) Gravity, friction, and air resistance are examples of forces and motion. Living things and their environments Human impact on the environment (e.g., climate change, pollution)
Key Stage 3:
Students in Key Stage 3 continue to expand their scientific knowledge and comprehension by studying difficult topics such as genetics, waves, and the periodic table. We cover the following topics with Key Stage 3 students: Inheritance and genetics Light, music, and electromagnetic waves are examples of waves. Chemical reactions and the periodic table Ecosystems and ecology Disease and health.
Key Stage 4:
Students in Key Stage 4 study increasingly difficult topics in biology, chemistry, and physics as they prepare for their GCSE exams. We cover the following topics with Key Stage 4 students: Human biology (for example, the nervous system, immunology, and genetics) Chemical reactions and element and compound characteristics Electricity, waves, and energy transmission The Earth's and solar system's structures Techniques for investigation and practical skills.
Key Stage 5:
Key Stage 5 in the UK National Curriculum, also known as post-16 or sixth form education, is optional for students who decide to continue their studies beyond the compulsory phase of education at the age of 16. At this stage, students can opt to specialize in one or more of the core sciences, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. They can choose to take courses within a specific discipline or mix courses from different disciplines based on their interests and career aspirations. The Science curriculum at Key Stage 5 is more advanced than that of Key Stage 4 and covers topics such as Genetics and Evolution, Organic Chemistry, Quantum Mechanics, Astrophysics, and Medical Physics.
